This is the true story of Sir Wilfred Grenfell, an adventurous young doctor from England, who in 1892 set sail across the Atlantic Ocean to bring medical relief to the remote fishing communities on the rugged shores of northern Newfoundland and Labrador. He immediately fell in love with the land and its people but was horrified to discover the cruel conditions that they endured. In an effort to help he joined with the local people to build traveling hospital ships, local clinics, schools and orphanages.
